Strut Washer / Strut

Took my 997.2 TT in for service and I was advised that the strut washers have disintegrated and need to be replaced. I'm OK with having the washer replaced, but I was a bit surprised by the cost of this repair, $999.64. That is labor and the washer, existing strut to be reused. I have replaced struts on my cars before, and although it was a bit labor intensive, it was straightforward. Am I missing something? If it is labor intensive and requires special tools maybe I should have the shop do the repair. And if they are going to have everything apart would it make sense to have new struts installed at the same time? Thanks in advance for your replies.

Car has 250k track miles?
At the very least that estimate should include alignment, still seems a little high.
